new tires and wheels

I've got a stock f-350 and I'm looking for new tires and wheels. the ones i think I'm going to get are.

17x9 for the wheels
and I'm looking at some 295/70/17 load D nitto terra grapplers.
anyone have any pics of black rims on a tan truck?
and does anyone know if I'm going to have a problem running those size tries stock.
any help appreciated.

that tire might be a little bid wider than stock but I doubt it would rub. I think my truck came with 295's stock. Are you looking for recommendations on other rims? Cuz I think there are better looking rims out there. depends what your budget is I guess.

Wheels look awesome. But you might want to ensure that the tires @ load range D can handle the weight you require. As I know all 350 come with load range E

I would go ONLY with load E tires. my 2 cents hoss. Largest OEM tire/wheel on SD's that I know of are 20x8.5's with 275/65R20 GOODyear AT's. Pizza cutters. great on-road tire. but for a truck this big in sand/dirt or any kind of off-road they suck. 285, 305, 315 & 12.50" are good widths.

just curious....you were talking about load ratings on tires. What load rating is the stock tire that comes on the F250? When I bought my truck (used) it had Cooper 305's with a loading rating D
